A very gaunt looking President Buhari and members of his Media Team
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, has disclosed the facts concerning the status of his health. The president had left Nigeria for London, seeking treatment against what his team referred to, as a recurring ear infection.
Buhari, who left Nigeria since May 7th, 2017, insists he is well enough to go home but prefers to follow doctor`s orders. The President`s Media Team, led by Mr. Lai Mohammad, the Minister of Information and Culture, met with a clearly emaciated President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Abuja House, in London, England.
Mr. Lai Mohammad was accompanied on his visit by, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters, Mallam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, Special Adviser, Media and Publicity and Lauretta Onochie, the President`s Personal Assistant, Digital/Online Media. The Media Team, further echoed President Buhari`s statement, informing the Nigerian people that the Nigerian President`s health had improved but, they could not offer a definite medical release date.
Nigerians demand to know the truth
Following the flurry of visits to the President in London, from party leaders, state governors, and Acting President Yemi Osinbajo – the Nigerian people have been demanding an explanation regarding the status of President Buhari`s health. Nigerians demand to know when the President would be able to resume his duties or resign, if health issues, continue to derail his ability to continue as the leader of the Nigerian people.
In 2015, during the election campaign, President Buhari had vehemently denied reports that he was gravely ill with prostate cancer. He categorized those claims as a ploy to present him as unprepared for the office of president.
Most Nigerians are very suspicious, the president`s team, could be harboring a cover up, concerning the ailing 74 year old Muhammadu Buhari`s health, because on May 5th 2010, President Umaru Musa Yar`Adua had died in office, following a visit abroad for medical treatment.
